Blessings

When I got out of the shower this morning, I could hear Jacob crying pretty hard. I hurried and dressed then, when I opened the door, I about fell backwards the smell was so intense! I look in to find poor Jacob covered in throw-up and, well, let's just say exploded diaper contents. Poor kid looked absolutely miserable. I quickly turned on the bathtub and stuck him in then started on the nasty job of pulling sheets and blankets out of his crib, wiping down all the rails on the crib and picking up chunks of who knows what, that were laying around on the floor. I'm not sure what he has but he threw up his breakfast as well. 
Right now, I am feeling very blessed to have in my possession my own washer and dryer. I would have hated to have to haul it all down to a laundry mat or to wash it all my hand. I love modern technology! Running water to give Jacob a bath, baby Tylenol to make him feel better and even Febreze, to help with the smell. Blessing, blessings!
I hope now that little Jacob will feel better soon.

He needs his "Granny" to help him feel better....Wish I could be there to "rock him"...): There is nothing harder on a "mother" than a little one...who is ill...They can't tell you much...except "throw up" and "and gross diapers" to express how they feel...

Oh that makes me so sad for you and for him!! So gross and so sad. I guess that's just part of what I have to look forward too :-) You're such a good mom Serene! I love reading about the next adventure in your house.
